According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, the Lakers are on the verge of acquiring point guard Jeremy Lin from the Houston Rockets:

With Carmelo likely heading to the Chicago Bulls or New York Knicks, Mitch Kupchak and company have decided it is time to move on. Although not considered a game-changing move for the Lakers, acquiring Lin along with a first-round draft pick is an attempt to bring in some much needed youth to a team that needs to rebuild.

In exchange for Lin, the Lakers send the following assets to Houston via Wojnarowski:

Last season, Lin averaged 12.5 points and 4.1 assists per game with the Rockets while shooting 44 percent from the floor. A solid contributor in the backcourt for Houston and could become a great addition to the Lakers roster next season.
